Very nice work! My favorite is white mat base color.
How hard is powder coating compared to anodized aluminum?

Only designs I can get on hydrographics film

I wasn’t going to make these available for sale because the problem is… it’s takes about 3 hours to do each one. Nothing would be budget about it!

It’s more of a satin, slight shine, the camera makes it look more Matt

A lot Harder than anodising and more durable, there’s some tests on YouTube

I think that’s great. Reminds me of graphics from 1980’s skateboards.

I want a flat Desert Tan or Flat Dark Earth just so I can start an uproar in the S2+ thread. “ I got one, I got ONE!!”

That certainly is cool.
Perhaps batch runs of solid colored could be made to reduce time/cost?

James that plain white is very sweet, how does it compare to non powder coated S2+ in terms of heat?

Any colour that Simon is already doing, i.e. Desert tan would be pointless in making, he can make it cheaper so you may as well wait!

I do more ‘unusual’ colours that won’t be made

Without getting out a thermometer, Just going by hand, I can say it makes absolutely no difference in heat, maybe an XHP50 might be different but just running standard XPL HI with a 3A driver, it doesn’t make a difference to me in terms of heat vs anodising

Just for the record I was only kidding. J-dub following in was kinda classic.
